Each has its own specialty design to make it better for the chosen activity.
Good question. Even when I carried my Shrike in Afghanistan, I still viewed more as a tool than a weapon. If you're looking at it as a weapon first, you're better off choosing an extra loaded magazine or two. Anything that big and heavy (relative speaking), should have more value as a tool first and weapon only as a necessity.

Ironically, I find if I include a tomahawk to my kit, I end up using far more than I have used a pack axe in the past. Again, I'm not chopping down trees or splitting large rounds of wood. Where it shines for me is just using it for more abusive tasks than I can to use my knife for.

Not a hawk fan, but if I was to buy one it would be an East wing:

Other colors/handle material combinations are available.

I use a two pound hand fire axe instead of a hawk, just my preference. One reason for this choice is that some of the local fuzz see a hawk as a weapon not a tool. Never give the fire axe a second look.
